The Subject of Phytochemistry is a fast developing field that has caught the attention of researchers worldwide. Phytochemistry deals with the study of secondary metabolites isolated from the plant kingdom, their characterization, reactions, transformations and biological activities. Other areas where phytochemistry has also played a significant role in synthesizing novel agriculture products, nutraceuticals and food and seed for humans and animals. Plants are sophisticated factories where a variety of chemical compounds are manufactured. These derived products are used as medicines, pesticides, perfumes, fragrances and other utility products. The systematic study of medicinal plants and its claimed use in traditional medicine against a particular ailment not only enables to discover the active substances responsible for that use but also opens interesting avenues for further research. Considering the above facts, this research work entitled, “Phytochemical Studies of Verbesina encelioides (Cavanilles) Bentham & Hooker f. ex A. Gray and Ageratum conyzoides L. and their Bactericidal Activity” deals with the exploration of two species of Verbesina encelioides and Ageratum conyzoides for pharmacological purpose.
